If you are eligible and meet the basic requirements you will be able to apply for a resident visa at any time. Bear in mind it is not PR. That is only available after you have held a resident visa for 2 years.

Thanks for your reply sir, according to my study VISA counselor I will only eligible for applying permanent resident visa after completing my wife study and when she will get work permit. As holding a student dependent VISA I will not able to apply PR even though having full points. Basically now I only lack behind with my IELTS score which is overall six band, whereas Immigration require overall 6.5 band.
